Fly from St. John’s to New York and experience the endless excitement of the city that never sleeps.
Head over to Central Park for plenty of things to do in New York. See the pristine gardens on a classic horse and carriage ride or by cycling down the tree-lined paths. Its ponds and the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir shelter a vast array of waterfowl to delight birdwatchers.
The green space also serves as an open-air performing arts venue. Take in a spellbinding rendition of Shakespeare in the Park at its Delacorte Theater. For a different kind of entertainment, take a spin that the entire family can enjoy by hopping on the Central Park Carousel.
A visit to Madison Square Gardens will elevate your sports game. This is where you can grab a seat for action-packed games to watch the New York Rangers and New York Knicks. If hockey and basketball aren’t your thing, the world-class concerts hosted at the gardens are likely to get you out of your seat and dancing to the music.
Nearby, the Empire State Building is a towering presence. Holding the title as one of the most visited points of interest in New York, the building is a must-see destination. Climb to the observation decks on the 86th and 102nd floors for panoramic views of Manhattan.
Get an entirely different perspective of New York from the High Line. The green space, built on an elevated rail line, spans over a mile. From this raised promenade, you can enjoy vistas of the changing urban landscape in Chelsea and the Meatpacking District. Walk by the reconstructed tracks and admire the colourful addition of plants and flowers.
Book flights from St. John’s to New York and lose track of time exploring the Big Apple.
Visit the old stomping grounds of the city’s rebels when you fly from St. John’s to New York.
As the 1960s counterculture died down in Greenwich Village, a new movement emerged next door. The neighbourhood of East Village formed the centre of New York’s punk rock scene in the following two decades.
The East Village has always been a place of change. You’ll see this in the mix of old-world and modern architecture at the junction of Cooper Square. Some of the buildings are part of the larger St. Mark’s Historic District, which showcases many New York landmarks. Snap a photo of St. Mark’s Church in-the-Bowery, dating back to 1795, with its Greek Revival style steeple.
Tompkins Square Park is the social hub of the East Village. The basketball courts, playgrounds, and dog park are all shaded by a rare collection of American elm trees. It’s an excellent spot for relaxing and people watching. Or, stop by and enjoy some groovy tunes at the annual Charlie Parker Jazz Festival, named for the famous musician who lived near the park.
Jazz is only an occasional diversion from the music at the heart of this neighbourhood. The remnants of the early punk rock scene can still be found in the East Village. If you’re shopping for a unique outfit, step into the chic boutiques, some of which have been styling rock stars and celebrities since the 1970s.
Join the fashionable crowd at the iconic Webster Hall for a riveting performance. The nightclub has been a staple of New York nightlife from its initial opening in 1886. Legendary jazz musicians and early rock icons have all graced its stage. Today, you can jam to a broader playlist of pop and hip-hop music.
Rock on in the East Village with a flight from St. John’s to New York.
See what’s cooking in Clinton, a.k.a. Hell’s Kitchen when you fly from St. John’s to New York.
Even with its hellish nickname, the neighbourhood evokes a distinctly cool vibe. The pedestrian-friendly streets are lined with independent shops and chic restaurants. Shop the brash fashion and book a trendy table at the local hotspots.
A section of Hell’s Kitchen, stretching along West 46th Street, is fittingly named Restaurant Row. Flip through the menus on this corridor for some tasty international flavours. Follow the street towards Times Square for the lively antics of New York’s street performers.
As part of the locale’s renewal, it is now officially known as Clinton. But, it is still one of the hottest places to visit in New York. Head to the area’s smaller Off-Broadway theatres for a quirky take on comedy and drama. Nearby, the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts hosts the New York Philharmonic and New York City Ballet.
Enjoy the performing arts and then take in Hudson River views. The Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum shelters a small fleet of historic naval ships in Hell’s Kitchen. You’ll find in the collection the USS Intrepid, a survivor of World War II and the Vietnam War.
Take off in the Space Shuttle Enterprise on your visit to the museum. Although the spacecraft never journeyed into galaxy, you can watch the space shuttle era unfold in its exhibit.
